“More Impressive from the Outside”
Review of Arctic Cathedral

Arctic Cathedral
Ranked #10 of 87 things to do in Tromso
Reviewed 25 July 2014

The cathedral has a very nice architecture and a curious shape. To see the inside you have to pay 40 NOK for entrance, which is quite a lot. Inside church has basic Lutheran architecture, but there is a nice stained glass window.

The midnight concert in the Tromso Arctic Cathedral features a soprano, a flutisit, and an organist/pianist. Sami and norweigian music is featured. The acoustics of the church made no amplication necessary. We went as a shore excursion from the Hurtigruten Nordlys. This was a 'not to be missed' experience.

Inside not as impressive as outside. 40 krone to get in seems like a lot, you can see it all from entrance! but then what is cheap in Norway!

Visited this modern church on a ship's tour, with just the right amount of time within before the services began. The main attraction is the immense stained glass window. Our tour guide pointed out 5 small items that were contained within the larger panel. See if you can locate them.

Tip #1: There are nice, clean restroom facilities in the lower level.
Tip #2: On a clear day, look across from the front of the church and spot the ski jump on the opposite side. Impressive!

The church is just Ok, you can see it from almost every spot in the town. You need to pay to enter, so it´s better to appreciate it from outside. It´s located in front of the bridge that connects the island with the mainland of the city,
